Saving infopath form to be continued later
Posted on 2014-04-16
I am teaching myself how to use Infopath 2010, Sharepoint 2013, and SPD13, to create a time sheet form to be filled out. I have hit two walls. Any help is appreciated!
Is there a way for multiple users to begin filling out a form, save the form, open it at a different time but from the same provided link to the form (with the information that was entered previously), and then submit the form when it is finished? I have designed a biweekly time sheet and I need the users to be able to fill in each day at the end of each day and submit the form for approval at the end of the pay period.
Second question: I have several XML data connections set up on the form to populate a few different fields. One XML file (which is still being created) needs to be able to populate three fields (employee name, ID#, and Department where they work). We want this information to be populated upon logging in to fill out the form. The user would enter their NT credentials and when the form opens it would be filled out with name, ID, and department(s). How do I set this up? Or would it be better to set it up from inside the form--the user opens a blank form, enters their ID number, the form refreshes and fills out the name and department.
If this doesn't all make sense, please let me know and I will do my best to explain myself! I don't have quite all of the lingo down yet as I am still learning.
